ABOUT THE RANCH
Once formerly a Olympic training facility, the horse amenities are priceless! Campana Creek Ranch is exquisitely situated amongst the gorgeous westside hills, dotted with old oaks, vineyards and olive ranches. Spectacular wildlife everywhere you look! The ranch is 30 minutes to downtown San Luis Obispo, 30 minutes to historic Hearst Castle and Cambria, 30 minutes to the beautiful beaches, and within walking distance to local wineries. The famous California Mid-State Fair is only 6 miles away, and historic downtown Paso Robles is a quick 7-8 minute drive. Something for everyone to enjoy.
Feel free to walk thru the various trails and barns on the property. Pick up a few of our four-legged furry residents to show you the way! Want to feed the Donkeys and goats? They love your table scraps!! Hershey, one of our donkeys was rounded up as a wild burro along with his girlfriend Molly. They are almost 16 years old and love the ranch. They will bray to let you know when it's feeding time. They are also known as great "guard dogs'".
Located almost exactly halfway between San Francisco and Los Angeles, Paso Robles (Spanish for Oak Pass) has a vineyard tradition stretching back over two centuries: Spanish missionaries planted the first wine grapes here in 1797. The region, about 20 miles from the Pacific Ocean, now has more than 80 wineries.
Signature Wines Paso Robles has been known for the generous flavors of its full-bodied red wines—first Zinfandel from the county's west side, then Cabernet Sauvignon, and now big-bodied Syrah, which is "the new Merlot" in these parts.
Wine Country Style Compared with Napa or even Sonoma, Paso Robles puts the country back in wine country. The wineries are mostly small, family-owned and spread out far and wide; tasting rooms tend to be low-key and homespun. For a pleasurable 300-wine overview, check out the Paso Robles Wine Festival, May 14 to 16 (805-239-8463 or pasowine.com).
Hunter and Allie-two of four of our black ranch dogs.
What's up with the black dogs?
Black dogs have the higest euthanasia rate in any shelter. Because they are dark, they portray a scary image to the general public. Hunter-the black lab was pulled out of a high kill shelter and has been a ranch resident for over 10 years. Allie was found as a stray puppy running the streets of San Miguel.
